Where is the interview at? I believe you but want to hear the context of Kramnik's statement since I really just don't believe any player of his caliber would even consider drawing that position.
Ok, well that statement is a far cry from "Black is dead" - but even then I don't agree with you - I don't see a clear plan for White to win the game in the final position, and an eventual f5 by Black will create a huge mess on the board where White can easily go astray. It doesn't really matter what evaluation the computer gives because in a game by two humans with limited time, they are not going to play perfectly - the position is very imbalanced and any mistake by either side could swing the evaluation.
The video of the press conference is on the official site, but it's all in Russian. I'm not sure if it's available anywhere in translation.
